Twelve years old and only now! now discovering this rare timepiece, this clock gold-bright and guaranteed to run threescore-end-ten . . .Douglas Spaulding made his wonderful discovery on the first day of summer, 1928. Before him were three months of unguessed wonders; he would watch, l isten, savor the bittersweet life that surrounded him in his small Illinoishome town. Perhaps it was because of his new awareness that Douglas found a procession of extraordinary people passing through his life that summer. Among them were an ingenious inventor who almost took the pleasure out of life by building a Happiness Machine; a handsome young reporter who fel in love with a charming ninety- year-old lady; a dying old gentleman whose lastact was listening to the clang of a green trolley car going around a corne r -- two thousand miles away. Even the seasonal rituals became very specialto Douglas: beating the rugs, setting up the porch swing, bottling the dan delion wine which would hold the essence ofsummer until it was opened on a cold January evening . . . All the special poetry and poignancy that long delighted Ray Bradbury fans come together in this rich evocative story. As he re-creates these important months in Douglas Spaulding's life, you cannothelp remembering the magical time of your own youthful summers." (from the dj).

Index. 4to, red cloth, maroon le ttering to front board and spine, colour illustrated endpapers. Photographyby Ed Kirkpatrick. "Many students and many people who have seen Mary Shepp ard Burton's work have asked for this book. Asked to see her work time and time again. Asked to know what makes her "tick." How does she produce such superior works of hoked art on such a variety of subjects, and in so many extraordinary ways? This is the reason why so many fine elements have been brought together to make this book. And this is why, much like her wonderfulwork, this book is unlike most others. Her writings are offered up here ex actly as she wrote them. They may have been entries in a notebook or journal. Thoughts jotted down on the back of an envelope, or written between the lines of someone else's text that she found meaningful. Look at them. Leaf through them to find what is of moment to you, and allow hem to open your mind to possibilities in your own life and work - whatever that work may be.In this book there is simply what constitutes a compendium of Mary Sheppar d Burton's unbelievably beautiful life work - and the lovely, undestated, humble, from-the-heart writings that accompany her paintings in wool, and validate them. These are accompanied as well by the work of some of her friends: among the finest textile artists in the world today." (from the dj).

Index. 8vo, illustrated tancard covers, lettered in maroon and black. "Rug Art - Rescued from Oblivio n is a delightful tale of discovery, but a sad reflection on the lack of preservation of North America's most endangered art form that has literally and figuratively been "tramped on" for much too long. Abandoned for more than half a century in the basement of a damp and mould filled former New Glasgow, Nova Scotia rug pattern factory, a determined research team found amazing pen and ink rug art created by an artist who is said to have studied inthe same New York art class with noted folk artist Norman Rockwell. Under a leaking sewage pipe in that same factory they unearthed amazing hand cut Mystery stencils that are now rewriting an amazing heritage." (from the back cover). Very good. 20.00

Inspired by the strong Irish heritage on the Southern shore, known as the Irish Loop, the women decided to create a body of work that would illustrate Newfoundland and Labrador's strong connection with Ireland. Hooking Our Heritage uses text and pictures to trace the progress of the rugs and tell the story behind each one. Within these pages, you will find rugs displaying the words, traditions, landscapes,songs and history shared between the country of Ireland and the province o f Newfoundland and Labrador. The finished rugs show Irish blessings, a farrier and his horse, women picking herts, fairies playing in a garden, Celticsymbols and many other examples of the links between Ireland an Newfoundla nd and Labrador." - from the back cover.
